Jenna Mammina

A picture may paint a thousand words, but a word can tell the whole story. “Exquisite!” says author/radio host Ben Fong-Torres, former senior editor of Rolling Stone Magazine and perennial king of what’s hot and what’s not. He’s talking about pop/jazz vocalist/songwriter Jenna Mammina and he is not alone. Hailing from Michigan, home to luminary vocal legends like Aretha Franklin, Betty Carter, and her mentor, Abbey Lincoln, Jenna’s mixed heritage household and neighborhood surrounded her with a vast array of diverse culture and music. Her parents, Ben and Grace, both accomplished musicians in their own right, nurtured all four siblings to cultivate their own breed of musical talent, culminating in the creation of their own independent record label Mamma Grace Records. And the rest is HERstory...

Albums:

Moonlight Ladies (Studio Master 24/96)

Jenna Mammina and John R. Burr collaborate on another fabulous set of classic (mostly James Taylor) songs. When Jenna Mammina sings, you don’t notice all the things she’s doing right. That’s the way it should be. She’s got you in the trance, where the song just seems to flow as if nothing else was possible except the way she’s singing it.
On Joni Mitchell’s sophisticated classic, “Free Man in Paris,” Burr starts off with harmonic colors and a subtle pulse. Jenna brings the familiar tale of a dream-merchant whose worldly success has made him wistful for a simpler time of life. The chorus, the only part of the song that repeats, gets a moment of sly interpretation from Jenna. You’ll know when you hear it.  
“Mexico,” a James Taylor favorite, opens with Jenna’s unaccompanied voice. John R. Burr’s piano enters effortlessly and provides that elusive but charming balance between propulsion and color.
